Is this thing on?: the art of comedy

- Lenny Bruce

Art is too serious sometimes. This show will focus on what makes us laugh. Most of us are part of the system and work 40+ hours a week and by the weekend we just want to unwind and be entertained. Artists will create work for you that is funny and absurd but will make you think.

 Acceptable formats include: video, performance, installation, audio, painting and drawings. You can submit 4-5 pieces. There is no fee. email submissions with video/audio links or jpeg attachments  to
